How long will the 5k run take?

Finishing times vary of course, but our fastest runners will complete the run in about 25 minutes. Most runners will fall between 30-45 minutes We will be sweeping the course at one hour from the starting time to ensure all runners have returned to the starting area.

Are there aid stations available?

Water will be available at the start. Two Aid stations will be available on the course. Each participant should plan to take no more than two servings of water at each Aid Station.

Where should I park?

Official event parking is provided in the school parking lot A, on West Sacramento Ave. A loading/unloading zone is available near the starting line, where all teams will gather prior to the run. You are welcome to drop off here, and follow the parking signs to the official event parking area.
